The Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik on vocal rest for a month

But thankfully it shouldn’t affect production

Posted on

Though Mayim Bialik won’t be able to speak for a month, it’s not expected to affect production on The Big Bang Theory, EW has learned.

On Wednesday, the actress tweeted that she was waiting for a check-up from her ENT (ear, nose, and throat doctor) and that she wouldn’t be able to speak for a month.

A rep for the actress says Bialik is on vocal rest due to a vocal cord issue, but it’s thankfully not expected to affect production on any of her projects. Production on season 11 of The Big Bang Theory, for instance, is expected to kick off in August, so her rest shouldn’t have an impact on the show.

In April, Bialik — along with costar Melissa Rauch — closed new deals to return to The Big Bang Theory in the wake of the CBS comedy being picked up for two more seasons. Original series stars Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar reportedly took pay cuts to get the duo raises.

The Big Bang Theory will return for season 11 on Monday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
